STEP 1: TRIM YOUR HAIR
When it comes to shaving the head, it is easiest if the hairs are trimmed all the way to the bottom with a trimmer first. We will therefore always recommend that you use a trimmer as the first step towards a bald forehead. The shorter you trim your hair, the easier the subsequent shave will be.
STEP 2: HOT SHOWER
Just like when you shave your face, it's a good idea to soften your skin with warm water - or better yet: a hot shower. This opens the pores, softens the skin and minimizes friction and risk of irritation. If you have just trimmed yourself, a bath will also remove excess hair so that these do not get stuck in the razor during the actual shave.
STEP 3: EXPLORE
While standing under the shower, you can use a mild facial scrub on your head. This removes all dead skin cells and prevents clogged pores as well as ingrown hairs. Take it easy and do not scrub hard to avoid unnecessary irritation. STEP 4: APPLY PRESHAVE
You can advantageously use a Preshave before your shave. A Preshave gives your scraper a much better glide over the head and creates a protective barrier between the blade and the skin. STEP 5: USE PRODUCT
Whether you choose to use a shaving foam from a 'can' or make your own shaving foam from a shaving cream or shaving soap is a matter of taste. The most important thing is that you use a good product that ensures the razor a good glide.
First, splash a little lukewarm water on top of your preshave and then apply your favorite shaving foam.
We have very good experiences with Prorasos red shaving cream
for head shaving. The shaving cream is oily, creamy and delicious and provides a really good protection during shaving.
You can of course apply it with a shaving brush, but you can also easily press a blob of shaving cream into the palms and foam the cream directly on the wet scalp (Note: It is important that you have splashed lukewarm water on the scalp first before applying shaving cream).
